How powerful are the M-1 Abrams tanks
Introduced in 1980, the M1 Abrams has the reputation of being the best tank in the world. It was named after General Creighton Abrams, a major commander in military operations during the Vietnam War. This in itself is quite advanced in terms of technology. It is armed with a main gun that can fire projectiles up to 4.7 inches (120 mm) and is heavily hardened armor with additional layers of steel and depleted uranium. It also has a caterpillar driven by a gas turbine engine.
The main reason for the popularity of the M1 Abrams tank during the war was its running speed. It is not only amazing but also incredible. It has steel plates at the bottom, which makes it different from other normal tires. The chains of steel plates mounted on it are linked together and allow it to move. Because of this, he is adept at dealing with enemies from all directions.
